The Parish Council elections are scheduled to take place in 2023.

Prospective candidates, be they serving Councillors or not, should familiarise themselves with the election procedures and reconfirm their eligibility to stand.

If a current Councillor is proposing to stand again they need to remember that to become nominated as a candidate they will need to submit a completed set of nomination papers to the Returning Officer at ESBC by 4pm on the 19th working day before the poll; the arrangements for delivery will be confirmed by the Council concerned – (East Staffordshire Borough Council).
